This is really helpful for websites. :) We ran it on slack and it changes the fonts fine. Did have to turn off the background and foreground colour changers, as they caused screen to blink a lot and patches to go completely dark. Recommended to configure with a font that you like (which is a super personal choice). <3

God awfull All it does is change teh font to a super skinny one that is large making it harder to read, it sucks.

Good job, bro! But better more if we have the shortcut key to quickly turn on/off (enable/disable) the tool. Or just make the button become one-click to enable/disable. Always enable/disable can be set in options menu.
